Compendex (Engineering Village) - Ready to dive in to your research? Compendex is one of the broadest and most complete engineering literature databases available. Records are indexed using the Engineering Index Thesaurus, which means the subject terms ("controlled vocabulary") are highly specific and up-to-date. As this is an indexing database, you may need to use ILL to get the full text. Compendex is not indexed in OneSearch; you must search it directly. [more info]
INSPEC - This is a very inclusive database to find engineering, scientific, and technical literature. Focuses on journal articles and conference proceedings, but also includes books, dissertations, patents, and reports. As this is an indexing database (that covers many items we don't own), you may need to use ILL to get the full text. INSPEC is indexed in OneSearch. [more info]
